Few things go better with summer than fudgsicles! These treats are a fun twist on the chocolatey childhood favorite and are packed full of nutrients and adaptogenic mushroom benefits thanks to the addition of our total vitality mushroom powder.
What’s in our mushroom powder?
Our Total Vitality Mushroom Blend is by far a customer favorite, and for good reason! It combines an equal mix of chaga, cordyceps, lion’s mane, and reishi mushrooms. All of the mushrooms included in this superfood mix are USDA certified organic and sustainably grown to our high standards. After harvesting, each mushroom is milled into fine powder for seamless addition to your drink or food of choice. Our Total Vitality Mushroom Blend takes the guess-work out of selecting which mushroom you should use and combines 4 mushrooms. Each with their own benefits and nutritional properties. This blend contains no additives or sweeteners and seamlessly mixes into coffee, smoothies and more with a rich and chocolate-like flavor.
Also known as “Sterile Conk Trunk Rot” or “black Mass”, Chaga looks like a lump of charcoal growing typically on birch trees in cold climates. This mushroom may be ugly, but its beautifully complex medicinal benefits make up for it! Chaga mushrooms have been harvested by humans for centuries and made into a tea for immune support and overall health benefits. Today, Chaga can be ground into a powder which makes it easy to include in drinks and dishes.
Lion’s mane mushrooms look exactly as the name would suggest, like a lions mane! They are prized for their ability to help protect against dementia and Alzheimer’s. As an anti-inflammatory, it may help with pain management and overall wellness.
As a superfood, cordyceps mushrooms may help increase the body’s oxygen productivity as well as fight fatigue, stress, and free radicals, managing blood sugar and boosting strength and heart health. The benefits of this adaptogen also extends to fighting inflammation, increasing libido, and boosting sex drive.
This red polypore fungus is one of the most widely used mushroom in traditional herbal remedies. Found in temperate forests, Reishi mushrooms are harvested from oak and plum trees, dried and powdered to form a powerful supplement. After extensive research, Reishi mushrooms have proven to fight free radicals while boosting the immune system and improving circulation. On top of that, these mushrooms may lower cholesterol, reduce allergic reactions and provide antioxidants that power the body.
